Letter A Rhyme (Contributed by "Maggie")

Way up high in the apple tree (stretch both arms above your head, hands open)
Two little apples smiled at me (keep arms above head, close hands into fists)
I shook that tree as hard as I could (keep arms above head, "shake" tree)
Down came the apples (bring fists down toward stomach)
Mmmm, they were good! (rub stomach)

MR. ALLIGATOR (Contributed by Linda)

Mr. Alligator, Mr. Alligator,
Don't you bite! (wag finger to say no)
Don't you bite!
I will run away from you, (running motion with hands)
I will run away from you,
Out of sight, (hands hide face)
Out of sight.
